Gift cards and gift certificates may not be the most personalized gifts one can receive for Christmas or birthdays but they are probably one of a few practical ones. I personally love receiving them. I do appreciate any types of gifts but sometimes when people don’t know what you really want, they end up sitting in the closet unused.
A couple of my favorite gifts last Christmas were gift certificates from Crossroads Trading Co. and Village Hat Shop. Since I’ve been bombarded with so much work during the holidays I didn’t get the chance to spend them until yesterday. So, as soon as I got the time…off I went to Crossroads. This place buys and sells used clothing. They are a few steps higher than goodwill stores and there are plenty of fashionable clothes and accessories to choose from if you have the time and patience to look for them.
One of the four items I found is this coat for $15.00. ↓
Today, I drove down to Old Sac to visit Village Hat Shop hoping to find the hat that I’ve been wanting to purchase (posted here). Unfortunately, it was no longer available. I was like a mad dog trying on one cool hat to another. Finally, this red hat seemed too hot for me to resist. ↓
It still feels like christmas to me…running around…shopping… without spending anything! I’m a happy camper! I’m that easy to please 🙂
